Mopars are back! In a surprising turn-around from one month ago, Mopar muscle cars have once again emerged as the favorites among internet buyers (see our Mopar Section). Dodge Challengers took the lead, claiming 15.3 percent of internet searches during June. Just last month Challengers had ranked sixth on our “Top Ten Most Popular” list for muscle cars. Each month the Cars On Line staff analyzes statistics from Google and Bing search engines in order to understand consumer trends. This past month the demand for Dodge muscle cars returned among internet buyers. For the second month in a row, the Dodge Charger landed in second place, claiming 14.6 percent of internet searches. Meanwhile, Camaro maintained its third-place position and Shelby Mustangs jumped up two spots to round out the top five. View the Top Ten Muscle Cars below.
Once again it was a month dominated by Ford in the classic car market. According to Google and Bing statistics, 13.8 percent of internet buyers were in pursuit of something built by Ford (see our Ford Section). For the second month in a row, the Ford F100 pickup truck was the vehicle that drew the most searches on the internet. The classic pickup was so popular that it made up 4.2 percent of all internet searches for classic vehicles. There were only minor changes in June’s classic car rankings. Rolls-Royce jumped up three spots to fifth place, while Nash fell three spots to eighth place. You’ll note this was the first time in as many months that Graham made an appearance within the Top Ten Classic Cars.
